released. barack obama, six years and bill clinton, 11 years and george w. bush nine years. is he playing into the hands? >> yes, he is. on a different reason of transparency. mitt romney is different. he is saying to the american people, vote for me because i'm a successful businessman and i can turn around an economy economy. all we are saying is look at your personal economics. you are talking about what you want to do to the american economy and yet, we're seeing evidence that you moved money overseas. we are seeing evidence that you had shell corporations in the caymans and bahamas. that is very material to mitt romney's own argument as to why he should be president. that is why it is more than are you being transparent. is mitt romney willing to show is us the money? let's see why he is so qualified based on his declaration that he is a very good businessman. let's see it, mitt. >> let's see what carl had to say on "morning joe" about this. >> to quote a book title, i think romney's taxes are a game changer. it is extraordinary to have someone running for president that won't show h
the george w. bush administration took office in 2001, the altair voyager was caed the condoleezza rice. dr. rice was a long time board member of chevron when george w. bush hired her to be the national security adviser. she had a tanker named after her. yeah, the former oil executive president picked the ceo of halliburton to be vice president and the board member of a chevron who had a tanker named after her to be national security advicer. it was a different time. pity poor chevron because when the bush administration took office, chevron faced the prospect of having one of its oil tankers floating around the middle east or off the coast of nigeria or something with the american national security adviser's name painted in big letters on the side of their tanker. that's awkward. that was awkward even before iraq. so chevron decided in 2001 they would change the name of the condoleezza rice. it would no longer be the condoleezza rice, it would instead being the altair voyager, which is the name of a star, a noncontroversial star. now the woman who once had her name painted or so it would s
in texas or he worked for many, many years. he helped nurture george w. bush and help him get elected. governor of texas, then was beyond his presidential election as well. he is very, very strong in the texas energy industry, knows many wealthy people there. he is, by all accounts, a terrific fund-raiser. and someone -- wealthy people enjoy talking about politics with him. this is not a science. this is an art. it is a question of personal relationships. karl rove is very skilled and those things. >> what about his relationship with romney? >> they have no long history of friendship or alliance. but karl rove has become basically the embodiment of the establishment of republican party in the same way that romney is sort of the alternative to the tea party, rove is the alternative. rove basically helped push the tea party candidates to one side. he was important in 2010, 2011 criticizing people like michelle bachmann, herman cain, and basically helping us sort out the republican field so that romney could emerge. and this is because karl rove and his allies saw romney as the most elec
george w. bush, george w. bush, george w. bush. car going back in the ditch and conde is driving it. >> dana: think of the video. >> andrea: exactly. one romney source told me months ago the goal of their campaign was to do no harm. and i think if they are going to do no harm, they will go with a safe bet, someone like rob portman, someone like -- >> eric: can i? >> andrea: very boring. >> eric: that is the problem with the romney campaign. >> bob: right. >> eric: i mentioned in the "a" block. they are defending boos, defending bank, defending bain. >> dana: not alcohol. >> eric: get off the defensehe . >> bob: you don't -- >> greg: they need alan west. it would blow everybody up. >> bob: it certainly would. >> dana: including bob's head. >> bob: if you are trying to become president don't play it safe. if you are incumbent, you say yes. the way they are doing this, if they take portman, it's not, vice presidents don't give you much. we know that. maybe a few points. rubio could give you a few points and win florida. the rest of the people -- >> andrea: playing a safe is a theme we
extreme speech and it really hurt george h.w. bush get re-elected that year. so sarah palin's not very popular in this country, especially with certain constituencies that they are trying to woo. mitt romney is in israel trying to get jewish votes in the united states. obama got 78% of jews the last time, in large part because sarah palin was on the ticket. so if he wants those jewish votes in ohio and florida, mitt romney wants to move away from sarah palin. on the other hand, if he moves too far away, he alienates the palin supporters in states like iowa that he's going to need for his base. >> sure. >> so he's in a tough spot on palin. >> very difficult spot there. does liz chainy do damage to her credibility saying that sarah palin is more qualified than barack obama and joe biden combined? i don't know many republicans that will honestly say that. >> that was kind of over the top. she was trying to clean up for her old man and show her loyalty to sarah palin and the tea party folks. they should not be underestimated. the most vivid demonstration of the power of the tea party was a
make mistakes. obviously george w. bush in 2000, barack obama made mistakes back in 2008 when he was running for president. it happens. so, look, at the end of the day this is a big, big bruise on the left chin but he will recover. there's no question about it. i'll remind you to put it in context. howard dean was the former democratic chairman and ran for president. so he naturally is a partisan and he will say that. >> to you here, jimmy, alongside all of this has been the issue of fund-raising in london as well, a fund-raiser was held last night for romney in london in fact and many barclays bankers gave money to that. $25,000 to 5,000 were the amounts. involved were executives from banks involved in the interest rate scandal, the investigation that's going on right now in london. does this help with the optics of that 1-99% argument that has been made by critics of governor romney? >> i think that's already solidified in most minds of americans, especially democrats. the question is what do women ages 30 to 50, independents especially, think about this sort of thing. i don't
resolution that calls on israelis and palestinians to work it out. president clinton, george w. bush and obama have all refused. in the 2008 campaign, mr. obama declared his support for jerusalem as the israeli capital, but didn't preclude negotiations. romney himself has declined to criticize the president while abroad, but he unloaded on him earlier this week. >> president obama is fond of lecturing israel's leaders. he was even caught by a microphone deriding them. >> some saw the timing of the ceremony, a day before romney travels to israel, as an efforts to upstage him. democrats denied him. >> that's not true at all because it's john boehner and eric cantor who set the time frame for this. >> polls give the president a substantial lead over mitt romney among jewish voters, but not nearly as big as the lead he enjoyed over john mccain. the romney camp hopes just reducing the advantage will help change the outcome in november. brett? >> bret: wendell goler, thank you. the opening ceremony for the summer olympics is going on right now in london. more than 10,000 athletes from 200
policy pop quiz that george w. bush faced in 2000. a local tv reporter in boston started peppering him with questions about the names of foreign leaders. he flubbed it, he couldn't rather remember a few. this isn't quite the same effect but it is troublesome for somebody who travels, has been the governor and who in the moment seems to be speaking the truth of what he saw. >> joe scarborough and former governor howard dean weighed in this morning as well. here's what he said. >> what's he going to do in israel? look around and go -- >> i'm a tad bit worried about the trip to israel. >> the palestinians should have all of jerusalem and what's he going to do in poland? say hitler was right? >> this is a disastrous trip from one end to the other. do i think he'll recover? probably. but this is probably the worst trip that any presidential candidate has taken. >> robert, worst trip ever? will he recover? >> of course he will recover. let's put this in context. yes, he's running for president of the united states, it's a very important job but he's human and humans make mistakes. obviously
george w. bush forged a very close relationship with former british prime minister tony blair, with whom he was not an ideological soul mate. here was an opportunity for mitt romney and david cameron, peas in a pod politically, both conservatives to try and establish some kind of alliance that could take them both forward. and instead, mitt romney has found himself causing david cameron to come out and push back on this issue of the olympics, because as chris ship knows, better i think than any of us, david cameron's own credibility is at stake over the success or failure of these olympic games. >> well, let's look at romney trying to clean up the mess. but i do want to remind our viewers here in the states of what david cameron did to take a shot at him in the morning. let's take a look at this morning on the "today" show, our big morning show here. mitt romney tried to end the static he had stirred up with a "nightly news" interview he did with brian williams. he did it by complimenting now. he has switched in the past just about everything. here he is switching on the british olympics
years ago today, something big happened under george w. bush. and we haven't looked back since. but it's not an event to celebrate. you're watching "politicsnation" on msnbc.

that to george h.w. bush. they had him in his boat off the bay out there where he lives. here's a guy who at 18 years old, gorge h.w. bush, graduates from prep school, goes down and joins the navy, becomes a fighter bomber pilot and is shot down in the pacific, and they call him a wimp. within of the reasons they do, both these fellows are," if you will, look like wasp folks but there are a lot of those folks that have a lot of guts and courage and do a lot of things even though they are polite and have good manners. bob beckel is a guy, bob has guts, bob came on and work on my show, and even before that he was the chief salesman for jimmy carter for the panama canal treaty. you are talking about guts there. >> and it takes a lot of them, pat. and believe me, it does. >> also following you around when you were running for president was a dangerous thing to do but i did it anyway. >> but if i paid a dollar for "news ""i would put out a headline president cry baby because he can't take responsibility. he got everything he wanted passed and he blames everybody. why doesn't he take responsibility?
, george w. bush never did anything like this. >> worse than dubya you're saying? >> i can't imagine george w. bush doing this. i can't imagine that. he had some sophistication about foreign affairs. this is shocking to me. >> krystal, this is one of those days where i have to say i appreciate the spirit of the british press. they are willing to step right up there and say what they mean. >> yeah. and you grabbed some amazing material. when i was prepping for this segment, i could have gone on for hours because there were so many fantastic tweets and quotes and headlines and so much material to work with. but honestly for mitt romney, there were essentially two goals for this trip, right? to sort of run around looking vaguely presidential and to sort of slyly remind people of his own olympic success. and in one day he's managed to kill both of those things by insulting everyone and looking the opposite of presidential. looking like he can't even handle, you know, the relationship that should have been the easiest, going to the olympics, going to our friends. it really is an incredible thing

h.w. bush and in 2004 by george w. bush against john kerry, the swift boating. all three of these politicians come from massachusetts. i wonder if it's something in the water there. but what you're seeing is very carefully constructed box. there are small nails that go into the box and there's some big rivets that go in there. the small nails are things like this controversy the last three or four days of whether he was -- whether romney was in charge of bain capital from 1999 to 2002, but the biggest piece of this argument are the tax returns. romney is going to be hammered on these tax returns until he releases them, and a number of republicans are now saying that. >> let me show you also the way the romney campaign has counter-attacked because they have released an ad featuring journalists. watch this. >> when the president was elected, he talked about hope and change. whatever happened to hope and change? now it seems he's just coming right out of the box with these old-fashioned negative ads. >> by starting negative, by going extremely tough and extremely hard, looki
for president george w. bush. paul begala is a democratic strategist and adviser to a pro-obama super pac. paul, let's begin with you. as you've heard, the obama campaign was basically saying mitt romney is either a criminal or he's a liar. and romney's campaign is calling on the obama campaign to apologize. saying it's demeaning to the office of the president. do you think, in fact, an apology is necessary, paul? >> no, toughen up, mitt. this is campaigns. this is politics. here's what thomas jefferson campaign said about john adams. they called him a hideous her farm ra diedic character. adams said worse things about jefferson. if you're not tough enough to stand up to stephanie cutter, how are you going to stand up to vladimir putin, i mean, come on. >> even if it turns out to be completely untrue, what they say. >> no, this is completely true. there are signed documents that list him as the ceo. there are other documents that he signed that are sworn that said he had nothing to do with the company at the time. his public financial disclosure documents. one of them is wrong. either he was th
're look at is much more the george w. bush campaign in 2004. >> the accusations that john kerry -- >> reporter: he's talking about the swiftboat campaign. in which john kerry was demonized over what his campaign considered an attribute. his decorated service as a soldier in vietnam. the swiftboat ads, backed by a group of pro-bush veterans, questioned the democratic challenger's conduct in the war, his anti-war activities later and his patriotism. kerry was slow to respond and never very effective in refuting their claims. even though his critics offered little in the way of proof. he lost the election of course. for many democrats, swiftboating became a catch-all term for any unfair, untrue, personal assault on a candidate. >> romney's companies -- >> reporter: but if the president is troubled by the comparison of his bain attacks to the republican swiftboating, he's not showing it. >> when you're president, everything is called into question. >> reporter: romney has been spurred to hit back fast. >> as much as a presidential election is a referendum on the incumbent, the cllen
